Digital Dickens’ Show Benefits Story Crossroads in Utah

Digital Dickens' Show Benefits Story Crossroads in Utah

Storyteller Tim Lowry from South Carolina has raised nearly $18,000 to date for child welfare and family literacy causes and chose this year to benefit Salt Lake County-based nonprofit Story Crossroads. Every year except this one, Lowry traveled with his Christmas Show “Dickens’ A Christmas Carol” and his CD sales raised funds for an identified charity or non-profit. 

Storyteller Tim Lowry, a longtime friend of Story Crossroads, has a special online version of his popular show Dickens’ A Christmas Carol available at his website. Tim has presented this story at the National Storytelling Festival and the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival, as well as locations from Georgia to Alaska.

The show is available now through January 6, 2021 as a three day rental for $20. View the trailer and/or purchase a ticket at Enter the coupon code CROSSROADS and you’ll get $2 off and Tim will also make a $3 donation to Story Crossroads to help further their mission. You can see an interview with Tim here:

Using Charles Dickens’ personally edited copy, Tim presents an energetic and dramatic retelling of this holiday classic. And for good measure, he even throws in a cooking demonstration showing how to make a proper Christmas pudding just like Mrs. Cratchit.

Tim says, “It feels strange to be at home. Last year, I logged more than 16,000 miles during the month of December. But here we are in 2020, Year of the Coronavirus, and I am at my home and you are at yours. I wish it could be otherwise. I miss my Christmas audiences tremendously. However, as Dickens would say, ‘I am standing in the spirit at your elbow.’ God be with you ’til we meet again!”
